Nosson Tzvi Finkel

Nosson Tzvi Finkel, also known as the Alter of Slobodka, was an influential Lithuanian Jewish leader of Orthodox Judaism in Eastern Europe. He founded and led the Slobodka Yeshiva (Yeshivat Knesset Yisrael), shaping its identity as a flagship institution incorporating the study and practice of Musar. In 1924, he helped create a branch of his yeshiva in Hebron, ultimately relocating there himself for the final two years of his life. Many of his students became major leaders of Orthodox Judaism in the USA and Israel. His son, Rabbi Eliezer Yehuda Finkel, became the head of the Mir Yeshiva, the largest post-high school yeshiva in the world today.
